Geller says, "Reading GREAT writing, that showcases powerful storytelling and imagination is essential. The work I do involves TRUE stories, in the news and talk world of broadcasting... but reading fiction stokes the imagination and allows broadcasters to open their minds to possibilities and stimulates new approaches to the news and events of the day.
All the brilliant, kind and powerful women and men who are also powerful storytellers.
